Achieving the rank of Eagle is a proud moment for a Boy Scout. On Saturday, May 29, 2021, a celebration was held for two young men from Troop 18. Colin Donatto and Benjamin Geoffroy were honored for achieving this milestone.
The celebration took place at the Germantown Church of God in Cascade. Colin Donatto is the son of Vino and Ann Donatto. Benjamin Geoffroy is the son of Michael and Lynda Geoffroy. Approximately 75 guests, along with their families, attended the celebration. In their scouting careers, Colin earned 18 Merit Badges, and Benjamin earned 19. As a requirement for being awarded the rank of Eagle, both Colin and Benjamin completed projects that will benefit their communities. Colin created a Prayer Garden on the property of the Germantown Church of God, where he is a member. Benjamin constructed a storage shed for use by Hawley Memorial Presbyterian Church, which hosts Troop 18. To complete these projects, Colin and Benjamin were required to submit a plan for their projects to the Boy Scout Council. Upon approval, they were responsible for raising funds to pay for the project, and recruiting and leading a crew of volunteers to assist in the completion of the project.
Their families and friends are proud of these young men for reaching this level in their scouting career. Congratulations to them both.
